It is still just as productive. What does sitting around mindlessly watching television accomplish? Nothing. What does sitting around reading a book accomplish? Nothing. Nothing wrong with that, they are just different things people do to kill time.
And those fighting games do require skill. That is why button mashers don't get paid to play them in tournament settings. Sure the single player is easy, but those games are made to be played against other people.
